Le bourgeois gentilhomme by Molière

By Molière

Monsieur Jourdain, courageous bourgeois, n'a qu'un rêve : devenir noble. Pour y parvenir, tous les moyens sont bons. Apprend-il los angeles musique par amour de l'art ? Il veut plutôt briller en société. L'escrime, pour se défendre ? Il aspire seulement à porter l'épée. S'habille-t-il avec recherche ? Il est moins élégant qu'extravagant. Et s'il cultive les fréquentations de haut rang, c'est que Monsieur Jourdain songe à marier sa fille, mais à un gentilhomme, pas à ce roturier de Cléonte. A moins que celui-ci ne lui trouve un moyen de s'anoblir... Critique intemporelle des objectives dévorantes et des parvenus qui croient pouvoir tout acheter, comédie- ballet haute en couleurs écrite en collaboration avec Lully et mêlant chansons et danses, Le Bourgeois gentilhomme (1670) est plus qu'une comédie de moeurs : c'est un spectacle overall.

Sample text

Chen: Yes, what we’re trying to do in Viewpoints is that when we work with Palestinian homogeneous groups, [a Palestinian] is facilitating the Forum Theatre and the discussion. And when we work with the Israeli Arabs, [we have Israeli Arab] Jokers. But the method is the same. We had a discussion about whether we should mix the facilitators, and the decision was that each side would facilitate their own group. I didn’t agree with this, as I don’t think it’s a good idea actually; I think it’s better to work with mixed facilitators.

Look. See? Sol heard us. Sol: What is your idea, Luna? OF: (to child) What is your idea again? Child: (whispering to OF) Take turns. OF: (as Luna) Sol, we should take turns. Sol: Do you mean take turns sitting in the sun and the shade? OF: (to child) Is this what you mean? Child: Yes. OF: (as Luna) Yes. Sol: Hmm . . that’s a good idea. Luna, will you come and sit in the sun with me first? OF: (to child) What do you think? Child: Yes. OF: (as Luna) Yes. Sol: Good. You come sit over here with me for two hours, and then I will sit in the shade with you.

In ascending level of challenge, exposure, and complexity, they include the following: • Facilitation of children’s ideas with puppet reenactment/enactment. The OF gathers a number of suggestions from the children and identifies a suggestion for the puppets to act out. The OF communicates to the puppeteer the suggestion that will be enacted and at what point in the scenario the reenactment should begin. The puppeteer then enacts the suggestions without further input from the children. • Direct communication with the puppets (guiding/ facilitating).
